A Mediocre Addition to the Kommissar X Series
This movie begins with two snipers ambushing a police car in Los Angeles carrying a criminal by the name of "Arthur Hillary" (Franco Fantasia) who knows the location of over $3 million in jewels. Upon killing all of the police in the vehicle the three criminals initially head for Calgary to hide out. Since the murders occurred in Los Angeles a police detective named "Captain Tom Rowland" (Brad Harris) is sent to Canada to lend his expertise. Additionally, since the jewels were insured a private detective named "Joe Walker" (Tony Kendall) is assigned by the insurance company to attempt to recover the stolen jewels. Although this doesn't make him too happy Captain Rowland soon comes to appreciate the assistance of his old colleague especially when things begin to get a bit rough. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that I don't consider this film to be on the same level with a couple of others in the series due in large part to the lack of focus shown toward the overall plot. Likewise, some of the humor was rather weak and could have used some improvement as well. In any case, while not a terribly bad addition to the series, I don't consider this to be outstanding in any way and I have rated it accordingly. Average.
